App of the Day: Prisma Transforms Your Photos into Van Gogh and Picasso Style Artworks

prisma-app

A Russian iOS app called Prisma has finally made the merging of famous artworks and your own images as easy as 1, 2, 3. Using a combination of neural networks and God knows what else you’re now one step closer to making things like this. Spotted this over on Prosthetic Knowledge (of course).

    One of the pieces of art that is used as a filter is by a friend of mine. I asked this artist if they had been contacted by Prisma about licensing their work, but she didn’t know anything about it until a few days ago when several people started email the artist about seeing her work in the app. I can only assume that several, if not all, of the images used as source for filters were used without permission.

    The app is fun, and I appreciate your endorsement of it, but they are not operating fairly, and I would hope you might reconsider your position on this app; at the very least, perhaps ask the developers about the art licensing.

Sneak Peek of Timothy Saccenti and Sam Rolfes’ New Book

saccenti9

saccenti6
 

Visionary director and photographer Timothy Saccenti has a beautiful print project coming out! Made in collaboration with 3D illustrator Sam Rolfes and heavily inspired by model/actor Sui Nakashima (who Saccenti met on a project for Depeche Mode’s last album), SUI: A Journey in Self-Realization explores identity formation and transformation through a series of computer-generated manipulations.

The cinematic feel of the project is testament to Saccenti and Rolfes process, shooting thousands of frames in studio with Rolfes live scanning and manipulating on set/in real time. SUI consists of 35 unbound images that allow the reader to go through them in whatever way they choose. It also comes packaged in a reflective polychrome box encased in a vellum sheet, a deliberate decision on the part of CYMK Books to enhance the unique, material aspect of the project. Check out more images of SUI below!
